Striped Marsh Frog
Limnodynastes peronii

The Striped Marsh Frog is the largest of the Limnodynastes frogs at 4.6-7.3 cm, appearing more elongated than its rather dumpy relatives. It occurs in coastal regions from northern Queensland round to just inside SA and the north coast of Tasmania, just as long as it is near a permanant source of fresh water. The patterning also makes this frog distinct from it relatives, consisting mainly of stripes as opposed to spots. In NSW, this species is very common, even in suburban habitats, while it rarer in other areas.
